Australian Chairman of Selectors Rod Marsh has sensationally stepped down from the role following the humiliating Test series loss to South Africa.

Marsh's resignation is effective immediately.

The Australian Cricket website states that no replacement has yet been named with an extradordinary meeting set for later this evening.

Marsh is quoted as saying that he was not forced out of the role.

"This is my own decision and no-one within Cricket Australia has pressured me or even suggested that I should do this," Marsh said.

"Clearly, though, it is time for some fresh thinking, just as it is for our Test team to welcome some new faces as we build for the future.

"I have always had the best interests of Australian cricket foremost in my heart, and that's why I have made this decision.

"I wish the captain, coach and the team all the best going forward. We will be great again."
